SCHEDULE 5TEXT OF ANNEX I TO THE DIRECTIVE

Characteristics of the Full-Time and Part-Time Training of Specialists as Referred to in Articles 24(1)(C) and 25

1.  Full-time training of specialists

  • Such training shall be carried out in specific posts recognised by the competent authority.

  • It shall involve participation in all the medical activities of the department where the training is carried out, including on-call duties, so that the trainee specialist devotes to this practical and theoretical training all his professional activity throughout the duration of the standard working week and throughout the year according to provisions agreed by the competent authorities. Accordingly these posts shall be subject to appropriate remuneration.

  • Training may be interrupted for reasons such as military service, secondment, pregnancy or sickness. The total duration of the training shall not be reduced by reason of any interruption.

2.  Part-time training of specialists

  • This training shall meet the same requirements as full-time training, from which it shall differ only in the possibility of limiting participation in medical activities to a period at least half of that provided for in the second paragraph of point 1.

  • The competent authorities shall ensure that the total duration and quality of part-time training of specialists are not less than those of full-time trainees. Appropriate remuneration shall consequently be attached to such part-time training.
